akismet says my API key is invalid, why?

  • Hi All,

    When I go to “bbpress dashboard > Content > Akismet Spam” I’m told “The API key you have specified is invalid. Please double check the $bb->akismet_key variable in your config.php file. If you don’t have an API key yet, you can get one at WordPress.com.”

    Which I’ve checked and double-checked. I’m positive I’m putting the same string in that I see when I login to http://wordpress.com/profile/

    When I check my wordpress blog, running on a different host and different domain from bbpress, the same key is there and wp reports the akismet plugin is working.

    Another post from 6 months ago said replacing single quotes with double quotes in config.php fixed the problem for them. Doesn’t work for me though. http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/146?replies=4

    I’m running bbpress 0.8.1 on Sourceforge.net.

    Any ideas what’s wrong?

    thanks!
